lol.
Why are you laughing for?

Plus the "Xonar Xense' has a lifetime warranty. And currently the only asus sound card that offers that kind of warranty on it. I have the xonar d2x and i miss the fact you can't upgrade the op-amps on it. But the xense and few others you can on those.

I have the D2x and its great. Got it on Craigslist for 80 bucks. Sound is loud, Clear and the bass rumbles. What more can you ask for?

I have the D2 and have been very impressed with it. Great clarity and quality. Drivers weren't the best i've used but once sorted, it's a dream to have. Make sure you don't waste it and get a decent pair of headphones.

Sheesh as in, that's a big PSU for a "Mid Tower" case.
You don't normally see the 1kw+ beasts inside mid-towers.

I mean honestly, it's kind bad cause you don't need that much power. Though it's not like I'm going to shun you because you've got more than enough PSU for your rig.
